Worth Co. Farmer Wins $2,500 for Worth County 4-H

Brett Hardy, a Grant City farmer, was selected as a winner in the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program, which gave farmers the opportunity to win $2.500 for their favorite local nonprofit organization.  The Monsanto Fund sponsors the program, and winning farmers designate a local nonprofit organization to benefit from the donations.  Hardy designated the Worth County MU Extension 4-H program to receive the donation. 

Hardy said he is very excited to have been selected as the winner for Worth County.  “Grow Communities is a really good program to give back to the community.”

Karla Parman, MU Extension 4-H Youth Program Associate, said  “We are very excited because we are the smallest county in the state of Missouri.  We don’t have a lot of money-making projects, and we can use the money to grow our 4-H program.  We really appreciate it.”
